hopefully I did not overlap anything that was posted previuosly.
At this point, I'm pretty sure I'm gonna have to put in an order for more ultima in the near future(before the formula and price change), nothing non-hormonal as ever worked this well or this quick for me in the ergogenic realm. nothing.I just wanted to throw this out here. I often workout twice a day and I've found that if I take a full serving with my morning workout then nothing during my evening workout, my evening workout ends up being incredibly intense. I think it may be better to just take the product all day long like haiz is doing and simply a full dose pre/during workout might be too much, at least for me. It's like my mind is fuctioning at such high capacity that working out isn't mentally stimulating enough or that I'm too zen after taking ULTIMA to let out what little agression I have to really attack the weights. You guys screwed up and made way too powerful of a product here
I'm not really giving this a rating it's just an unexpected bonus that I seem to have acquired from this. I have noticed increased assertiveness and aggression shining through me. This is appreciated for me since I am normally quiet spoken and easy going but I have to attribute this change to Ultima because it's the only Supp change I have made lately. (I know it's not a test booster or a PH but I swear this has happened lol)Honestly. Best $50 I've ever spent hands down. I hope that Omega is able to keep this same formula and price as I will definitely be picking up another Tub. I wanted to rave about it after the first night I tried it but I gave it two weeks and decided it was long enough to rule out the dreaded "Placebo Effect from the Black Lagoon". I highly recommend this product to any and everyone for building muscle as well as overall health. Thanks for all the hard work Omega!
It's amazing. Let me explain it like this. After 1/2 scoop, you just feel.. Different.. Better.. Unstopable.
Your body says enough while your mind says "Don't you f**kin stop now.. 2 more reps".. Guess what.. Your mind wins.Originally Posted by garyboyOriginally Posted by iballardOriginally Posted by dabiggiuI just kept piling on the weights, and finding myself able to keep pushing out reps. Great feeling. My legs are killing me right now, but I am feeling fantastic.Originally Posted by Peter LeDrewOriginally Posted by NsaladinoLooking at my leg numbers as of recently I realized that I am about as strong in my legs today at ~200 lbs (weigh in friday) as I was when I was a 250+ offensive lineman. Not bad, not bad at all.i feel like writing 'awesome' a hundred times for y'all to understand...i cannot type fast enough for how fast my brain is going....
-the second time I did it an hour later, 15 minutes intentionally before my workout. Next thing I know its an hour later and I'm done with a brutal workout. I take a shower eat and now I just finished reading a article for school and am alomst done writing the paper......wow
-I didn't feel stimmed out. I felt great and still do. No crash. This feels real clean

I love dosing Ultima like this. I added two new exercises, did a bunch of random pull-ups and hangs, hit a crazy pr on db rows and ended up finishing my workout 30 minutes earlier than normal... and oh im cutting toI dosed 1/4 scoop immediately pre-workout and 1/4 scoop an hour later... Holy crap what a difference! Seriously one of the best workouts I've had in a long, long time. Intensity, intensity, intensity is all I can say. My endurance, focus, strength, recovery time, rest time, muscle fullness, pump, cardiovascular endurance, all of it was absolutely awesome. I had 5 people that generally see me everyday in the gym, ask me what was up and what I was taking. You get an immediate energy boost/intense feeling of vigilance within a few minuets of having it under your tongue. I didn't feel zoned out or foggy at all I felt focused, determined, energized, and relentless. During my cardio I felt an immense feeling of wellbeing that has continued well after (as I'm sure you can tell by my use of adjectives) I kept adding weight to my exercises and took little to no time between sets it was pretty crazy. The only time I really rested between sets was when I was too pumped to lift properly. This is how I will be dosing ULTIMA from now on and recommending it to others as well.Originally Posted by haiz69Tried the Ultima under the tongue thing pre-wo tonight...INSTANT mental clarity + drive. WOW. Only did 1/4 scoop 45 minutes pre, 1/4 scoop 15 minutes pre, and then sipped the other half intra.
Solid dosing IMO. If I didn't enjoy sipping it so much (I mix it with a bit of caffeine free dew), I'd do it this way all the time.haven't had enough time to really put this to the test in the gym lately. This week I used it as a study aid (for a ton of school work). I had 2 tests, 2 quizzes, 2 labs to perform (including dissecting a cat), 1 to write-up, and a huge HW assignment this week... and ultima helped me out big time! I was at school from 8 in the morning on tuesday until 2:30 AM on wednesday... then back at 8 in the morning on wednesday and didn't leave until almost 10 at night, and I did it stimulant free with Ultima. I actually noticed how much I was retaining when I was studying material for my classes... it was pretty damn impressive.

Reserved for review.
Log will be up tonight; however, after 3 days on this, I can already say that it is the best pre-workout supplement in terms of non-jitter energy and mental clarity.
More to come...

How about some more feedback, you say?
I actually put my dad on it (55) just for work purposes. He says he has never felt or SLEPT better. Good stuff.
I must note, my mind-muscle connection is better than ever with Ultima.I have been in this game since the early 90's, and I have to say Ultima is the best supplement I have ever tried. I can't believe how good I felt during my workout yesterday.
I'm training shoulders today, and I can't wait.Are freakin kidding me with this stuff? That was the best non ph/ps workout I have ever experinced. No way in hell that it was a placebo effect, I had awesome pumps/endurance/focus/strength, on the very first workout Finally, a product that lives up to the hype 100%. I can't wait for my next workout.
OK, here is some of my feedback.
My endurance and stamina are at an all time high, plus my recovery is going well too.
I basically just do jiu jitsu 4 times a week and if I can fit in some kind of weight session I will.
I am very happy with things but there is one thing I did leave out.
Matt was kind enough to include a bottle of T Force when I ordered and I started taking it one week after staring Ultima. I use 2 caps per day. So I think the combo of these 2 products are helping.
Umm yeah so I finally decide to man up yesterday.
1/2 Scoop Sublingual (2 Heaping Tbsp) about 30 minutes pre-workout. I sipped the other 1/2 scoop in 16oz of water throughout the workout.
I had focus, energy, and clarity like I couldn't believe. TORE through my leg workout!! I left almost no time between sets. Squats, Hack Squats, Lunges, SLDL's. Nothing could slow me down. Oh and I speed roped (jump rope) for 20 minutes afterwards.
I didn't think it could get any better.. It just has
Buds, I preach this loudly from my soapbox.
Ultima was made for mornings. I hit the gym before 5am M-F. Nothing clears the cobwebs like Ultima. Not Dew, not stim pills, not coffee, nothing else comes remotely close. And I'm a junkie. I've done everything but chase the dragon. This stuff just flat-out gets it done.
A brief story: At 3:06 this morning, my phone rings. I look at it and discover that it's C-Unit (my ex). I didn't answer it, but I decided that as long as I'm up, I'll get a start on my day. Through the fog I reached for my new morning companion. Mixed up some (1/3 scoop) Ultima and after holding a few sips under muh tung I rapidly fired off some extremely clear minded, knife-twisting text messages to C-Unit. She's still ragging on me for it.
Introduction: I have had a 5 week long run of ultima courtesy of the good people at Omega Sports. My log wrapped up just recently which you can find here: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showth...hp?t=114018611 . I won a contest a while back based on a "guess the ingredients/what's not the ingredients and why" thread (the smallest company promo thread ever), if you're interested in that post, you can find it here: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showpo...1&postcount=42 . The following is my review of this product, having used it for 19 workouts, I'm not going to blabber a lot as I know that most people peruse these things quickly and are just looking for the gist of it. Any other information you might want to know can probably be found in the first post of my log.
Diet: It was carb/calorie cycling, my own spinoff of Lyle Mcdonald's UD2.0. Calories were cut Monday through Friday afternoon, and from then until next monday was a game of "how many carbs can you eat?" It ended up being a slight deficit over a weeks period.
Beginning Weight:197 Ending Weight: 193
Squat: 315 for 5 405x3
Lat Pulldown: 175x5 190x2
Flat DB bench: 180x3 230x3
All lifts increased to some extent, I simply felt that these were the most note-worthy. Every time I went into the gym with ultima past week one, I set a PR in something new. The strength from this product was quicker to manifest and more than regular creatine monohydrate. Ultima was the best product for strength I have ever used. period.
Focus: The focus with ultima is different from stimulant based products. Many loggers felt that the nootropics were too much at first, and I would agree you do have to get a little acclimated. The focus was pretty much the same from the first dose to the last. Which is good and bad; it's not cumulative like the other aspects of the product, but I felt no tolerance develop either. I feel like if a part of the product could be dropped down it was the nootropics. Still, overall I really enjoyed them and even came to prefer the ultima energy to caffeine energy.
Endurance: Endurance was fantastic. With the help of ultima I was able to incorporate drop sets and cardio into my routine. I have used straight beta alanine before and can say that the endurance aspect of ultima started much quicker, about a week in. This was something that only got better as time progressed.
Possible Revisions: The things I liked least about this version of ultima (small list)
That being said, I know this is a beta and things will be changed, just wanted to put in my thoughts. Even given the above things, if I had the money I would be purchasing another tub of Ultima now.
- Off taste of product
- Funky smell of breath after using said product
- when consumed too quickly, nootropics could almost make you feel slowed down
Closing: Ultima was an excellent product, I'm very glad I had the opportunity to log it. I think in the final release with the full science write-up, things will be perfect. You have to take into account that I'm only judging the ingredients based off of what they do in a vacuum (B-vitamins lower homocysteine, creatine increases strength etc), but when the full biochemical pathway being exploited is elucidated, I at least will be excited. It is my honest opinion that ultima is far and above any product I've used and (at least on label value) any other product in the category.

Final Review: Ultima
See post #1 for background/intro.
As mentioned previously, I was looking to Ultima to help reduce my intake of caffeine, esp. in PreWO supplements. Part of the reason Ultima looked to be a superior choice over other formulations was the sheer quality of the ingredients; everything is provided in the best form, in very generous doses (15mg of Methyl-B12!) , and cGMP compliant.
I chose to dose the ULTIMA Sublingually; the taste is amazing, and so this was quite enjoyable. It also allowed the ULTIMA to kick in quite fast; often within 5-10 minutes I would feel it. The focus was quite pronounced; I found myself staring down the DB/BB, and sometimes zoned out while during my rest. However when I did hit the weights, it was with some nice focus/determination.
As for the performance-enhacing aspects of ULTIMA, I would say that it helped me continual my steady progression in weights. My goal was to cut/recomp which went well until I hit my 8-day protein powder binge, but overall I had constant strength increase. It was in line with what I normally see during a recomp. I also think it is very important to point out that I had been supplementing with Creatine and Beta-Alanine for a substantial time up-until starting ULTIMA; a person that had not been taking these two supplements would have experienced much more marked performance boosts.
I did notice a marked benefit in sleep; the effect may have worn off after a few weeks, or perhaps I grew accustomed to the improved sleep. I was unable to notice an increase in sweating/thermogenesis that some others noted, but I find this to be very hard to judge without bias.
Another important aspect I was looking for was an energy boost; I was hoping the Cognifive Blend would provide a significant energy boost without the use of caffeine. In one case (April 7th), I was tired and after dosing ULTIMA I felt quite refreshed and energized. However, I never felt a very significant "energy boost". On two memorable occasions I added in some ALCAR without lowering the dose, and it proved to be too much, so consider starting very low with other nootropics, as per their instructions. On one occasion I tried some SlimXtreme + Ultima, and the workout was phenomenal. I actually picked up some SX and was planning on trying it again with my own purchase of Ultima, however it was announced that the final version of Ultima will be enhanced in the stim department, so this many not be necessary.
In conclusion, I will most definitely be purchasing the final release version of Ultima to see how the stimulant aspect is improved. I will update this thread at that point with my thoughts. However, even if I find the final product to be not as centrally stimulating as I would like, I know that the addition of a mild stim will make for a mind-blowing workout. Also I can't stress enough how impressed I am with the ingredient profile; no corners were cut, and this is worth it's price alone just for the vitamins. I feel it will lead to a variety of benefits that aren't easily perceived, but help to prime my body for optimal workouts and growth. As for my recommendation, it would be try the beta Utima and add a stim if necessary, and expect greatness from the final.
Finally: Thank you to Ultima for allowing me to Beta test this product, and give my feedback. If anybody has any further questions/comments/clarifications please feel free to post/PM me at any time in the future. I tried to be as thorough as possible, but sometimes I overlook/skim over certain aspects. Until next time

Great final review, Steve. I look forward to your comparisons with the end product that that put out.
04-24-2009, 08:58 AM
I'm on my second tub and am experience strength gains similiar to a test booster and a leaning out effect even though I'm eatting a surplus of cals.
Well verdict in, I took 1 scoop Ultima Pre-Workout and 1/2 Scoop ONE....did 45min blasting chest, then 1/2 scoop ONE and finished out another 25min, and followed up with XF Ultra Peptide
And....HOLY ****! Great focus; I felt like a machine, really connected to my muscles, no jitters, no anxiety at all, tons of force behind my reps, and the PUMPS were unreal....looking forward to hitting the gym tomorrow already.
I actually just got back from the gym. Took a full serving of Ultima before I went, and had an amazing workout. The mind-muscle connection, endurance, thermo effect, caffeine free energy....Ultima cannot be beat.
Ultima's been pretty good to me. My workout's have gone up a good 20-30% with Ultima over naNO VAPOR and Animal Pump.
I'm lacking proper words to describe how this supplement makes me feel. In simplest terms, I just feel 'better' 30 minutes after drinking it...ready to ''do work, son'' I get home after taking this at work and I'm ready to work out and not stop. I'm able to get through my sets without fatigue, mental or physical. This is top notch stuff.I ordered my first tub of Ultima last month and I LOVE this stuff. Thanks for producing something that actually works!
Dosed Ultima pre-run at a 10K road race, and it felt great. I wasn't sure how if/how the creatine would impact the run, and whether it did or not, I don't really care to write about.
The focus that Ultima brings is the heartbeat of the product for me. During the run, I just felt dialed in. It's an unmistakable feeling that you recognize when you got it, and its unforgettable for that matter. The body can be jacked out on caffeine and turn out some impressive performances, but it'll never reach its full potential unless the mind is behind it in full force, in dedication and commitment. Ultima has without a doubt earned a spot in my "staples", which seems to be a collection that is ever-growing.
I'm only on my 2nd week, but I'm making gains I never thought imaginable. Seriously. This stuff really is the Real Deal. No hype, just pure 100% results. Making progress each workout and have yet to build even the slightest tolerance, still feels like Day 1.
I love Ultima. I had my 4th workout on it today( chest ) and it kicked ass again. I benched 120 pound dumbells for 6 reps, and I have never even attempted 120's before. Then I went over and did hammer strength incline, and repped 3 plates and a quater on each side no problem.
At 255, I'm far from being a really strong guy, so those lifts are very much like being on pro-hormones to me. You guys should try stacking glycer-grow with this stuff for insane pumps.
holy **** i didn't notice much during the first week then yesterday i hit PRs on bench and squats, and rows, which i haven't managed to do in a couple weeks (i've only been lifting seriously for a few months and my newb gains began to slow down over the past month). best part is, it didn't even feel that hard to set the PRs! and i haven't made gains on 3 lifts in one session since i first began the program. if this keeps up i will be EXTREMELY happy with my strength gains. 10/10 so far
I love Ultima because:
-- concentrated, jitter-free energy and focus
-- similar drive effect at the gym without the tolerances and negatives of high doses of caffeine
-- ^^^^ but I can take it and be asleep an hour after my last set
-- all of the proven benefits of creatine in a form without the bloating I have experienced from monohydrate
-- effective doses (in preferred forms) of many vitamins, minerals, electrolytes
-- day-long increases noticed in mental alertness and activity
-- day-long feeling of elevated mood
Sure, it had a lot of hype. But that's because, like any other product, a promo thread was started. The difference between Ultima and the rest is generally most other products release their ingredient profile and it is met with criticism or indifference (and a lot of the indifference is just criticism that is kept private). Ultima was hard to criticize and got a lot of people who know their **** excited, and that in turn got people who recognize who on here knows their ****, excited.
Then, with everyone excited about it, Omega's desire for near-perfection caused them to continue delaying the release, leading to anticipation and the resulting build-up of hype.
Is it life-changing? No.
But if I could only take one non-staple supplement, this would be it.
